Paul Merson predicts where Manchester United will finish this season

Paul Merson is expecting Manchester United to finish in the Premier League top-four this season. The Red Devils are currently sitting in 2nd place in the league table 14 points behind the leaders Manchester City and one point ahead of Leicester City. While United will be keen to secure their place in the league top-four, Merson has given his prediction, writing in his column for Sky Sports: “People keep laughing because I keep saying it but Manchester United are the biggest club in world football, in my opinion. “But they need to win something. It’s alright going and beating Man City and stopping the run, but you’ve got to kick on and go and win a trophy. Now the pressure is on – they’ve got the Europa and that’s it. “I don’t know what they’re thinking upstairs at United. I don’t know if they’re thinking ‘just get us top four, Champions League football and we’ll go from there’. “They’re going to get Champions League football, I don’t see them finishing outside the top four so for Ole not to keep his job when teams like Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal might not finish in the top four – it’s not as easy as it used to be to walk into the top four every year. “It depends how the owners perceive it and what they want. If it’s going to keep ticking over the books for them, getting into the top four, it’s a job well done. “For me, it’s Manchester United and they need to be winning trophies. But if they win the Europa League and get in the top four, which I expect them to, I don’t see anything wrong with that.”
